Georgia picked up four players at the start of the early signing period for women's basketball, while Georgia Tech added three newcomers.

The Lady Bulldogs signed 6-foot-3 wing player Anne Marie Armstrong, 6-2 center Jasmine Hassell, 5-9 guard Jasmine James and 6-2 forward Tamika Willis.

Armstrong plays at the Wesleyan School in Norcross, while Willis attends Atlanta's Westlake High. Hassell and James are both from Tennessee.

"I'm very pleased with the quality of the class," Georgia coach Andy Landers said. "I'm sure this class as a whole will be recognized as an outstanding group, but each individual player is outstanding and will have the opportunity to make our team better."

Georgia Tech signed 5-9 point guard Sharena Taylor of Pontiac, Mich.; 6-2 guard Jasmine Blain of North Cobb Christian High school in Kennesaw; and 6-5 center Shayla Bivins of Jacksonville Fla.

"We have signed an impact point, a shooting guard with size and a physical post that has tremendous upside," coach MaChelle Joseph said. "My staff has done an unbelievable job the past three seasons, following up back-to-back top-10 classes with another class ranked in the nation's top 20 this year."
